Hilary Duff Gets Fashionable With Teen Vogue Hollywood Triple Threat Talks About Fame and Why She

Already Hates the Tabloids

    NEW YORK, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- From her early beginnings as TV's Lizzie
 McGuire, Hilary Duff has added film actress, singer, and fashion entrepreneur
 to her repertoire.  Duff has become Hollywood's latest triple threat.  She is
 17 years old.  Duff sat down with Teen Vogue senior writer Lauren Waterman to
 discuss her career and it didn't take long for her feelings toward the tabloid
 media to come up.

     With Duff's growing fame she has had to learn to tolerate the attentions
 of the press, but she can't hold back, "I hate them, she says. "They follow
 you! I've had nine cars on me for six hours, no joke."  She continues, "It's
 sick when the tabloids are criticizing people for what they wear, saying that
 they're not skinny enough. Everyone feels so much pressure to look a certain
 way." And regarding the obsessive chronicling of her love life, she adds,
 "Joel [from Good Charlotte] and I hung out in Toronto and then all of a sudden
 I read that we were making out everywhere, heavy canoodling. It's hard because
 it ruins the friendship."
     Though life may be sweet for Duff by any teenager's estimation, it's
 definitely not simple.  The tabloid trauma, she says, is "the worst part of
 the job."  It makes enjoyable pastimes like shopping a chore.  But she admits
 she can cherry pick from the latest collections by Marc Jacobs or Chanel when
 she does need a new dress.  "I get so much that other girls don't," she
     Despite the impositions of the tabloids and the constant stalking by the
 press, Duff swears she would never quit. "Working is what makes me really
 happy," she says.  It's like when she was a little girl, new to L.A., going on
 three or four auditions a day, "I always loved the challenge of seeing how far
 you can get."
     She's certainly not done yet.  Duff is busy with two new film projects and
 plans to start touring in April to support her self-titled second album.  One
 project ahead is a co-starring role with sister Halie titled Material Girls.
 "Halie is really funny," she says "Her comedic timing is crazy." The two will
 star as siblings who have a lot of money.  Like the Hiltons?  "You didn't hear
 that from me," Duff says with a coy smile.
     The December/January issue of Teen Vogue is on sale in New York and Los
 Angeles on November 5th and nationwide on November 9th.
